Our Services


If you lose kidney function, you may need to start renal replacement therapy, commonly referred to as dialysis. There are 2 kinds of treatment:



Hemodialysis is a treatment that cleans the fluid and poisons from your blood. During a hemodialysis treatment, your blood travels through tubing to an artificial kidney or Dialyzer where the poisons and fluid are removed. Hemodialysis can be done in a dialysis facility or in your home. Nightly Home Hemodialysis is a treatment that takes place in your home and allows for more freedom and flexibility.

Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal Dialysis is a treatment that you can do at home after training is completed. Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of your abdominal cavity as the filter for cleaning your blood.


If you have advanced kidney disease and are approaching dialysis or are already on dialysis, kidney transplantation may be a good treatment option for you. Our team can help guide you through the kidney transplantation referral process and work closely with your transplant team after surgery. We collaborate closely with the top two transplant centers in the country — University of Virginia, Charlottesville and Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond — to provide excellent transplant care.
